Old Hindi film poster for sale of the Bollywood movie, Aafat (1977).
This is an actual surviving old Hind film poster of the 1977 Bollywood movie that featured Navin Nischol, Leena Chandavarkar and Mehmood in lead roles.
Printed and circulated during the first release run of the film (late 1970s), this old Hindi film poster was designed and printed for publicity of the movie but never ended up being used.
This classic Hindi film poster for sale was originally designed in hand painted oil on canvas format by one of the finest Bollywood poster painters of his time, V.G. Parchure of Pamart studio fame. His printed signature in the name of his art studio appears on the bottom right hand corner of this old Hindi film poster.
True to master Bollywood poster painter V.G. Parchure’s trademark style, this old Hindi film poster features stunning hand painted imagery. A large hand painted close up portrait of Mehmood is seen prominently on the top of the poster. Holding a magnifying glass in his hand, his face appears painted in a brilliant shade of green. Smaller hand painted portraits of Navin Nischol and Leena Chandavarkar are seen at the bottom of this old Hindi film poster for sale.
